Collecting of rice landraces in the Central African Republic

Grant No
Project Description
This project supported the collection of rice landraces in Central African Republic (CAR). The main concern in CAR is that the diffusion and adoption of improved varieties could lead to a decline of diversity conserved by farmers, as well as to the abandon of cultural practices. Only one accession of rice remained in the Central African Republic genebank, so the assembly of current on-farm rice diversity for conservation and rice improvement was urgent.
